You might be sad about the fact that we have just six episodes left with Emmy-winner Kyra Sedgwick's Brenda Leigh Johnson. We're just excited that we do indeed have half a dozen adventures to come with the sweet-toothed deputy chief before she rides off into the TV drama sunset on August 13. As The Closer winds to its conclusion, Brenda thinks she may finally have the jump on Philip Stroh (guest star Billy Burke), the lawyer and suspected rapist she's been trying to send to jail for years. Brenda's obsession may threaten her career, however, especially on the heels of the federal lawsuit that was sparked when someone inside the department leaked information and painted Brenda in a bad light. Capt. Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and Chief Pope (J.K. Simmons) continue to investigate the leak, and the lawsuit was dropped, but Brenda's reputation took a hit and she was left with the realization that she can't trust all the people she's worked with for years. In a lighter episode, Lt. Provenza (G.W. Bailey) gets a visit from his ex-wife -- the first ex-wife -- who wants his help recovering her stolen wedding ring. Provenza agrees, but it leads him into another embarrassing situation, including a dog who swallows some evidence. The final season of The Closer airs Mondays, 9/8c on TNT.
